If ever a cocktail was worth 30 euro, this is where that is absolutely true. Steeped in the history of another time and the writer who embodied it, Bar Hemingway is special. This is Colin Pete Fields place with his custom drink menu. He has been mixing drinks here for nearly 25 years and was four-times voted Best Bartender in... More

Romantic, mysterious, sophisticated yet cozy, the smell of opulence and indulgence, ah que c'est fantastique! The place where you don't need to order drinks, simply start a conversation with Collin at the bar and let him do his magic. Then take your time sipping and enjoying not just the drink but also this incredible place. Wait until the early morning... More

My partner asked, "Would Hemingway actually have come here now, at the Ritz, if he were still alive?" I thoughfully looked around and answered, "I don't know." I love Hemingway and cocktails so of course we had to go to the Bar located in the Ritz. The Ritz itself is glamourous and lives up to the hype. The Heminway Bar... More

Of course with... More

We were very well received by the staff but unfortunately the barman had his friends at the bar and spent most of his time talking to them . My husband waited 10 minutes to be... More

We hasd the best of times in Bar Hemingway. The staff is extremely friendly and serviceable. Cocktails are a must, you shoud try several of their concoctions and will find a favorite. Colin and Romain have the helm, quick with a witty remark or a joke. Always crowded, you must wait must of the times to get in. Totally worth... More
